Safe Step Walk in Tub Prices

Based in Cleveland, Ohio, Homeward Bath has a wide array of accessible bathtubs that suit different mobility needs of seniors and veterans who need to bathe safely and independently.
Their substantial line of safety showers and accessible bathtubs are broken up into categories separated by different degrees of accessibility. Air massage systems, whirlpool, chromatherapy, heating pads, and low step-ins are a few of the luxury, safety, and therapeutic features that you'll find with Homeward Bath's accessible tubs and showers.
The Hydrolife series from Homeward Bath is a sturdy build made from acrylic composite. Centered around safety, usability, and durability, this model will assist you when entering and exiting it thanks to 3 of its easy-to-reach safety grab bars, very wide outward swinging door, low step-in, and anti-slip spacious interior.
Although it serves a wider group of seniors and veterans suffering from conditions which lead to different levels of immobility, it should be noted that this tub cannot be used for lateral access. Wheelchair-bound users will do better with easy transfer walk-in tubs (discussed in the next section).
By far the most accessible series from Homeward Bath, the Hydrolife Deluxe provides a design element for wheelchair-bound users to easily transfer from seat to seat without outside assistance. This is achieved by having the door's backrest and footrest completely exposed when the outward swinging door is opened, and all that's left for wheelchair users is to laterally slide from the wheelchair onto the tub seat.
A bigger version of the Hydrolife Deluxe series, the Deluxe XL, boasts a more spacious interior for bariatric users while still remaining true to its wheelchair-friendly form of access.
Hydrolife Deluxe Specifications:
Don't need a seat to feel complete? Next on our list is Homeward Bath's Aquarite, a walk-in tub in most respects except for a few minor differences. Fitting perfectly in a traditional 60" long tub space, this stylish looking unit has 16" wide door with a 9.5" high entrance.
If you need a seat to be able to take a bath, the standard features of this tub include a bench with a wood finish. Placed by having both sides of the bench resting on the tub's two longest parallel rims, you can slide on from the wheelchair sideways while having your feet pass through the door. Add-ons such as safety bars, wall-mounted grab bars, power seats, and other transfer benches can all be integrated easily with the Aquarite to make certain that your bath remains independent.
